Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 11, 1976):
An assemblage of American architecture distinguished by the variety of styles and famous architectural firms represented, the district includes Gothic Revival villas, Stick- and Shingle-style buildings, and great summer palaces of the late 19th century.

The Preservation Society of Newport County received a 2004 federal Save America's Treasures matching grant in the amount of $250,000 to restore Chateau-sur-Mer, a contributing building in the Bellevue Avenue National Historic Landmark District. The grant will support replacement of a deteriorated roof that threatens the building and its elaborate interior spaces.
